Eris HTTPd is a small web server to be run from inetd or tcpserver
(tcpsvd in busybox). It is based on
fnord HTTPd but shares very little
code in common now.
I created eris for Dirtbags CTF, an
embedded build. But it is also running woozle.org and many
other virtual hosts here.
- Actively maintained
- Small: around 1100 lines of code, 19k binary with glibc
- Fast: as fast as fnord
- Connection keepalive
- thttpd-style virtual domains
- IPv6 and SSL support
- Directory index generation
Differences with fnord
- command-line arguments instead of compile-time defines
- eliminated use of libowfat
- no build dependency on dietlibc
- elimination of "old style symlink handling"
- elimination of user switching (you can use tcpserver -[ug])
- elimination of chroot code (you can use chroot)
- several bugfixes (sent to the fnord mail list)
